If you think about it, there are a lot of things you can do in 5 minutes.

Friday-Faves1

You could pour yourself a great cup of coffee and sit in silence, immersing in the brew.

You could wander the baking aisle comparing every variety, shape and size of chocolate chips.

You could search out juuuuuust the right natural light and pluck your eyebrows and those other errant hairs that suddenly appear once you hit the ripe old age of 28.

You could pull your four legged best friend close and breathe in the smell of their stinky but oh so good smelling fur. And never let go.

You could stalk your Instagram feed to see how awesome everyone else’s breakfast looks as you drive your car through the car wash.

But no.

Instead, you are here, reading this week’s Friday Faves. And for that, I just want to give you a big old bear hug and sincerely say, Thank You.

Happy Friday everyone, and now, a few of this week’s Friday Faves.
